Key Skills

There are many indications that some people only apply to roles when they meet all the qualifications for a role. We believe that ticking off a list of skills is not the only thing that makes a great applicant. Therefore, the key requirement for this job is simply that you have experience leveraging big data to find patterns and make predictions. We’ll be particularly excited if you’ve deployed predictive models into production and have experience of time series modelling or search.

If that's you, then we encourage you to get in touch!


Culture & Perks

At Qubit we believe that culture has to be nurtured. Our engineering team is constantly iterating on how we build software to create an environment that is supportive, friendly and driven. We encourage activities such as cross-functional pairing so that everyone has the opportunity to learn both technical skills and problem solving techniques. We promote engineers having direct customer exposure so that everyone has a shared interest in product discovery, and we regularly experiment with new ways of working.

We champion diversity and are proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We embrace difference with open arms and see it as a huge benefit to our community. We are dedicated to equal opportunity regardless of race, colour, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or veteran status. If you have a disability or need that requires accommodation, please let us know.
